In the past month I had the pleasure and the honor to be hosted again by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing This was 3 years after the previous invitation.
During this period I gave talks on cloud computing at the following institutions:
- Institute of Computational Mathematics and Scientific/Engineering Computing, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
- Tsinghua University.
- Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The talk introduced the basics of cloud computing and displayed real use cases of applications pertaining to emergent areas such as Bioinformatics and Space Exploration in which I have been involved in the past years.
Also, there have been some meetings pursuing collaboration opportunities. As a result, some initial joint work was started by our research group, ICMSEC and ICT.
Summarizing, this period has been very productive. The new opportunities that have arisen are a good example on how cloud computing is a hot technology.
